project g

Mom. Wife. Attorney. 110 miles-a-day commuter. Aspiring gardener. Lover of the outdoors. "Project G" was started to chronicle my life as a mom to G and then I had a second kid, which I didn't factor in back in 2005 when I started this blog. So the "G" now stands for "GEE, life is grand balancing 1000 things at a time!", or "Gee, who knew wine went so well with parenting?". Enjoy!

Blake Island

Bucket list 2014: Check

Boating, hiking, sandy beaches and wildlife viewing. I am pretty sure life doesn't get any better than this.










Hands down this was the very best way to celebrate (mourn?) our last day of summer.

Ahoy mate!











So this happened. We bought a boat. Our maiden voyage was from the Redondo Marina. We went North to the tip of Vashon and then to the southern tip where we could see Tacoma.

I look forward to the many adventures ahead!

Camping 2014


















Feeling camping deprived, we got our act together and had a weekend of woodsy fun. Also we were reminded that you can't just decide to go camping last minute and think you're going to land a prime camping spot.

Traveling with 5 kids in tow we couldn't be crazy with the no reservation sites so, I recalled a campground near Quilcene and the Hamilton's hooked us up. They scouted out the spots bright & early. Thanks to them, we had a fabulous weekend. We introduced good friends to family camping, I picked blackberries, we hiked, we sat around the campfire and told stories, the boys enjoyed a quick water expedition, and last but not least we had yummy ice cream at Peninsula Foods. 

Long live summer!

Last day of school

And now I have a 2nd and 4th grader. Where does time go?

Love this picture. Love.
1st grade with Ms. Paris, both boys loved her as their 1st grade teacher.
Mr. Harris and G. After five years, Mr. Harris is moving on to become a principal in Portland. G is heartbroken.

And now it's officially summer in our house!
